MENDOCINO CAMPING

This past weekend was my birthday weekend, so - surprise, surprise - my choice was to be outside exploring a new place.  Mike and I went up to Mendocino, CA. with his older brother, Pat, and fiance (also a Courtney).  We camped at Van Damme State Park, explored downtown Mendocino and the Mendocino Headlands, rented wooden outrigger canoes, paddled down Big River, and hit up North Coast Brewing Company.  It was pretty fantastic.

Wilderness is not - and should not be - a past and vanishing force in life. It is, as far as anyone can see into the future in our rapidly changing and uncertain world, an abiding value.
